  • Cinnamon @ Off The CuffEvent poster / Facebook banner for latest Cinnamon event. For this project I directed a vision of how we wanted artwork to Betty. Efficient dialogue and Betty's expertise in illustration birthed one of my favourite Cinnamon posters.

    Founder & Event OrganiserDinner for one hundred
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    I believe in the fundamental importance of bringing people together and combining food and music is the perfect way to do this. Networking, communication and negotiation skills enable an ideal venue to be secured each time. I collaborate with chefs to create an exciting menu, sell tickets through social media promotion, and plan budgets (equipment, staff, etc). All future events will donate a portion of profits to a local loneliness charity.
